* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': The immortal Hanma made a game that rewards the winner with a crown that makes people want to obey the person who wears it. No, it's not magical.
-->'''Catalina:''' You made a ''hypno crown?!''\\
'''Hanma:''' What? No! I wouldn't do that! People just like to obey people who wear crowns! Why do you think royalty bothers to wear them?

* '''Tiaras''' are the iconic crown of the PrincessClassic and heavily associated with fairytales. Perched directly on top of the head, usually with heart or flower designs worked in, they are dainty and [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles sparkly]] and make [[HairDecorations great hair accessories]]. It's almost solely women who wear tiaras,[[note]]The Pope's triple crown used to be referred to as a "tiara" in English, despite looking nothing like the other sort of tiara[[/note]] and doesn't even need to be royalty (small tiaras were very popular--almost ''de rigeur''--for fashionable upper-crust women in the early 20th century), although queens and princesses will wear the fanciest ones. RealLife examples tend to be heavily GemEncrusted.

** '''Small hoop crowns''', much smaller than the skull of the wearer, are typical for queens and worn using pins to hold them in place. Queen Victoria was known for having a silver, diamond-encrusted one from 1870 onward (both the size and the material were chosen so she could wear it with the widow's weeds she insisted on wearing after the death of Prince Albert in 1861--gold and coloured jewels were not allowed in Victorian mourning colours, while silver and colourless jewels like diamonds were, while a larger crown would not fit atop her widow's cap).

* In ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', the first crown of Gondor was a war helm that belonged to Isildur, and the second (Aragorn was crowned with it), was a more pimped-up, crown-like helm. And in the other Númenórean kingdom, Arnor, a simple circlet with a single diamond was used. The Arnorian crown also existed in two iterations: the original and the replacement that was made after the original was lost. [[AllThereInTheManual After LOTR]], the original circlet was found, giving Aragorn a total of three cool crowns.

** Mátyás brings a crown from Torenth's treasury when he comes to Rhemuth to escort Liam-Lajos back for his investiture: "a handsome circlet of beaten gold, nearly the width of a man's three fingers, set round with smoky balas rubies, baroque pearls, and chunky rough-polished emeralds the size of a man's thumbnail." Liam receives a newer traditional Torenthi crown at the ceremony: "a golden diadem studded with rubies and emeralds and pearls, with great jeweled pendants hanging just short of his shoulders at either side.".

** Barenziah, Queen of Wayrest in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' and Queen Mother of Morrowind in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' wears circlets and tiaras. The Crown of Barenziah in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' is hard to classify. It's technically a circlet, but has gold wings big enough that it seems to be a helm when looked from the front. Barenziah also never was seen wearing this crown in either previous appearance, though this is possibly justified, since in ''Skyrim'' the crown has been broken into 25 fragments and must be reassembled, and it's not made clear how long ago it was shattered.
** Also from ''Morrowind'', Almalexia wears a crown made of some sort of greenish-bronze metal. [[spoiler:When she finally snaps and attacks the Nerevarine in the Clockwork City, she dawns a scary war mask made of this same metal]].
** In ''Skyrim'', the crown of the High King of Skyrim is a prime example of a pimped-out helmet: it's a helmet decorated with ''dragon's teeth''. Rather fitting for a ProudWarriorRace like the Nords.
** The Aetherial Crown in ''Dawnguard''. It's a circlet with a glowing piece of Aetherium embedded in it. It also boasts a unique and incredibly powerful effect: the ability to have two Standing Stone bonuses at once.
** The Jarls from ''Skyrim'' wear some pretty much plain circlets, not different from player-available jewelry. Justified because they are merely local aristocracy, not full royalty.

* The Prince's Crown in Literature/TheQuestOfTheUnaligned is either a circlet or a Hoop crown. Described as "made of white metal accented by gold trim and a myriad of diamonds that beam forth rainbows in every direction", this crown is both incredibly powerful and very dangerous. Each Crown Prince of Caederan must take this crown from its vaults at the Temple Of The Elements and carry it to the City Of Balance by the summer solstice, when it will be needed for his coronation ceremony. Except in the coronation ceremony, the Crown must never be touched, not even by the prince or its own caretakers. [[spoiler: It turns out the reason for this is that touching the Crown is necessary to become an orah or a hoshek]].

When Lianne wears it, she turns into a queen in Shen's eyes.
